Hello.

The codes your vehicle is showing are defined as follows:

P0123 - Throttle Position Sensor/Accelerator Position Pedal Circuit High Input
P2111 - Electronic Throttle Control Unable To Close
P2112 Throttle Actuator Control System - Stuck Closed
P2122 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch 'D' Circuit Low

All of these codes are related to the vehicle's electronic throttle body. The throttle body is the component that opens and closes when the accelerator pedal is stepped on to allow air into the engine in order to generate power. I would check the throttle body to make sure that it is functioning properly, as issues with the throttle body can cause the vehicle to experience drivability issues, such as reduced engine performance and fuel efficiency, and in some cases may even render the vehicle undrivable. If you are looking to have this done, a mechanic from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to thoroughly diagnose the cause of each Check Engine code and determine what repair(s) are needed.
